Alan Johnston is Emeritus Reader in Classical Archaeology at University College London. He has published widely on Greek archaeology, notably ceramics and epigraphy, having contributed to excavation reports from Aigina, Antikythera, Gravisca, Kition, Kommos and Kythera. Recently he has been working at the British Museum with the Naukratis Project team and on a catalogue of amphora stamps in the collection, and this publication is an offshoot of that work.
